Wear Orange Wednesday (WOW Day) is on Wednesday 22nd of May and it's your chance to show support for all State Emergency Service (SES) volunteers around Australia.

There are more than 9,000 dedicated SES volunteers in New South Wales alone who give their personal time to respond to emergencies across the State, 24 hours a day.

On WOW Day, Wednesday 22 May 2019, wear orange and take the time to say thanks to the SES volunteers who give so much.

Get involved, take a selfie and upload to your social media account with the hashtag #thankyouses

Think orange and thank orange.
